When My Work is the selected feature in Team Explorer, and you've touched the In Progress Work section to give it focus, any change you make to code files that updates the text in the In Progress Work section will cause the My Work feature to steal focus.

Any updates on this one? I'm having the issue as well, and it's very annoying.

I sent file using the URL you provided. Initially, I just sent the repro steps, then realized my mistake. So, I zipped the entire package and sent it as ""
Sorry for the confusion.

We didn't get any files. Maybe you can find the files from the local folder(\AppData\Local\VSFeedbackTool\Feedbacks\{ID}).

Please zip the files and use "FeedbackID-776805" as prefix of the file name. You can use the following workspace to upload the file:

I used the feedback tool to send a recording of the steps in question. Took me a minute to figure out how to keep the recording under the size limit, but you should have what you need.
